Cybersecurity comes of age

CEE Digital Trust Insights webcast


Cybersecurity is no longer just a tech issue. It is a business issue, a business enabler, and on the agenda of C-suite executives. 

Our latest Global Digital Trust Insights 2021 outlines five criteria to move cyber strategies forward and increase the resilience of every sector, player and company. They are: 

  • Reset your cyber strategy and evolve leadership

  • Rethink your cyber budget to get more out of it 

  • Invest in every advantage to level the playing field with attackers

  • Build resilience for any scenario

  • Future-proof your security team

What does this mean for Central & Eastern Europe? 

On 21 October 2020, our PwC CEE Digital Trust Insights webcast provided regional interpretation of these global trends. According to PwC CEE CEO Nick Kós, COVID-19 led to a bolder approach to adopting cyber security practices in our region. CEE was somewhat lagging behind the rest of Europe, but we now have an opportunity to close the gap and face the new challenges.


We’re investing in cyber because of our purpose. And part of our purpose is to build a digital secure society, and to do that together with you, with our clients.

Nick Kós, PwC CEE CEO

Moderated by PwC CEE Cybersecurity Leader Piotr Urban, the panelists discussed the emerging role of CISOs, where and how businesses should invest in cyber, the risks of cloud adoption and more.
